3 Monuments to explore in Laos

A socialist state and the only landlocked country in Southeast Asia lying at the heart of the Indochinese peninsula. Laos traces its historic and cultural identity to Lan Xang, which existed from the 14th century to the 18th century as one of the largest kingdoms in Southeast Asia.

Patuxay MonumentP.D.R, ວຽງຈັນ, Laos

Patuxai is a massive war monument and triumphal arch in the center of Vientiane, Laos. It was completed in 1968. It’s also known as the Arc de Triomphe of Vientiane due to its resemblance to the Arc de Triomphe in Paris. Patuxai, however, is slightly taller than its Parisian counterpart, has four gates rather than two, and is covered in distinctly Laotian designs.
